self-timer photo challenge

Since you did so well with your blog survey homework, I thought it would be fun to put together a photo challenge. I enjoy taking self-timer shots and I know many of you do too. Sometimes it's the only way to get on the other side of the camera.
This week join me in taking a self-timer photo. It can be of absolutely anything! Post your photo on your blog or facebook (posting a link back here) then I will link up everyones' photos on my blog. One big par-tay! Let's do it next Monday. (Since I will be out of town later this week.)

Friday we went to see the Winnie The Pooh movie at our local sticky-shoe theatre. Avery and I snuck outside while we waited for it to start and took some self-timer photos. I just set the camera on the ground and set it to 10 seconds then took a few shots. If you have a remote that works too. My kids love pushing the button so that could be a fun way to do it.
I hope you join me this week and take a self-timer shot!!



Thanks to everyone who took my little blog survey. I think the last time I checked there were over 2,500. Unless you've taken yours in the last couple days I've looked at each one and it was fun to read your comments. Each of you get a gold star!
And thanks for still being my friend after the Cleetus episode. ;) I left to run errands with Lola for a couple hours, while the girls were at school, and came home to that. Hilarious. The part with the tractor makes me laugh so hard because there literally was a tractor coming up the road that he started hollaring at. Improvisation. I did record the the diving, karaoke and reading a CK in the hot tub clips. Try doing that with out laughing.

This sounds like fun. I have a new camera & need to practice with it. I haven't taken any self-portraits with it yet.

I love your photos Lizzy, Avery is so adorable!! And it's a really nice project!! I always take self-portraits because there is no one else to take them for me (alas...)^^
So I have plenty of them and here you can find the last one of my sweet little family :D

Loved the Cleetus post - been waiting for it all summer ;o) But i was bummed because i didn't see any of the footage that you guys took when you went to the fair. Hopefully we'll see that next time!

That Cletus video is sooo funny. I love that he did that little ditty while you weren't even there. "I make a real good hush puppy" Love it!
